Interserve press office | Sep 14, 2017
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, provides an update on current trading and progress on its Energy from Waste contracts.
Trading in the UK in July and August was disappointing, particularly in support services, but also in the construction division. As a result of this, the Board now believes that the outturn for the year will be significantly below its previous expectations.
Further progress continues to be made on contracts within our exited Energy from Waste business.
However, the anticipated timing and complexities of completion mean that the Board now considers it likely that the final costs will significantly exceed the £160m currently provided.
A further update will be provided in due course.
The Board continues to believe that the group will be able to operate within its banking covenants for the year ended 31 December 2017.
